Cousins

Apologies if this has been covered in another thread.

There are quite a few articles on the Internet about calculating 'degrees of kinship', for want of a better word, but I'd be grateful for some confirmation of my understanding of these in a couple of areas:

For example:

- My 10 x grandfather is somebody else's grandfather.
Is this a first cousin, a certain number (8? 10?) of times removed?

- The ancestors of my ...

1921 Census of Canada now free online

I've just had this post from my local family history society and thought it deserved a wider audience.

They write: "Up until now it has been only available on pay per view sites but Library and Archives Canada has now released the 1921 Census and it is available Free to search and use. This adds to the Census collections from 1825 – 1916. https://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/19 ... earch.aspx

Many people from ...

GRO - pdfs are back ...

pdf copies of historic entries are now available again at a cost of £6.

https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/cert ... /Login.asp

There is a slight change to the previous trial - once produced, the pdf will be available to download from your account page on the GRO site for a period of time ( in the same way that probate service wills are delivered) rather than sent as an email attachment.

Two Baptisms

I am a little confused as to why my ancestors were baptised twice. My great great grandfather and his siblings were each baptised at St Peters in Nottingham and St Philips in Birmingham. For each child it happened at one location and then a couple of months later at the other (In no particular order). The family lived in Nottinghamshire but had family in Birmingham. This seems to be deliberately planned, as it happens with ...

Find my past

I have just had what I can only describe as a gushing email from FMP inviting me to renew my subscription with a "special loyalty discount" of 15%. Wow I thought, last year they only offered me 10%. Funnily enough, when I checked I found that last years 10% was off a price of £99.95 whereas this year's 15% is off £119.95 - an increase of 20% on the subscription and, for me, an increase ...
